Interesting - I was getting no warnings with my earlier fix - I
suspect it may be a change between versions of libiconv.

For a real laugh, add --pedantic to CFLAGS. 

You get lots of warnings about

String constants longer than C89 accepts
Variable array declarations
Initialisers which can't be evaluated at load time
C++ comments
Trailing commas in enum declarations
And a few other odd ones. None of these with the exception of C++
comments really looks too worrying.
